Let us help you create your dream home

Whether you’re considering a fixer-upper or dreaming of remodeling your current home, a renovation loan helps you get the job done.

Maybe you’ve found the perfect location, but the house needs improving. Maybe staying in your current (but outdated) home is what’s important. Either way, a renovation loan lets you make upgrades now and pay over time–so you can create a place you’re proud to call home.

Basics

A renovation loan allows you to purchase or refinance a home in almost any condition, make improvements and pay for them over time.

Your home loan includes the cost to buy the home, or refinance it, as well as the cost to complete your planned remodel. You’ll select a licensed general contractor and work with a construction loan administrator throughout the process.

In the end, you’ll have a home that fits your life.
